Lore timeline of the Arcenverse.

(1/13) > >>

x4000:
MOST of the games in the Arcen lineup are in the same sci-fi universe.  The exceptions are Tidalis, Shattered Haven, Skyward Collapse, and the two Valley games.

Chronologically we get:

1. Bionic Dues -- sometime in our future, but not too far off.  Corporations own whole cities, robots are rising up, etc.  But the robots largely suck and are not organized.

2. In Case Of Emergency, Release Raptor (this game) -- a bit further on in the future after Bionic Dues, but only a couple of hundred years at most.

-- Human civil war starts in earnest --

3. Untitled 3D Survival Game -- this one takes place a few hundred years later, on an "earth" that is not our real earth.  Or rather, it's not Earth Prime.

4. Exodus of the Machine (cancelled) -- this would have been a few hundred years after this game.

-- Then there's an even bigger human civil war, and the war with the AI, and humanity is all but wiped out --

5. AI War -- 800 years after that, here comes our first game.

-- millions of years pass --

6. Stars Beyond Reach -- no comment just yet, it's complicated. :)

-- a lot more time --

7. The Last Federation -- but wait, I thought this was supposed to be before SBR?  How else does this timeline make sense?  No comment yet. ;D

-- a lot more time --

8. Starward Rogue -- the Last Hydral is way off in space on his own.



Anyhow, there is backstory as well as sidestory in a number of the games that stretches between those time periods a bit more, and which answers a lot of questions.  The big one that answers TONS of questions and ties everything together... is Stars Beyond Reach.  Here's hoping that properly happens!

crazyroosterman:
you know I really really hope stars actually manages to have its lore and story(unlike star ward rogue ):) I have to ask though was bionic when It was made intended to fit into a universe? I imagine it wasn't but considering that ai war was already way out by this time and is in the same verse as bionic then its not beyond possibility also may will there be a lot of sound track to this game if so who shall be doing it?. (provided you've actually decided that of course)

Misery:
Okay, I really am confused here.

I thought Starward came AFTER Last Federation?  The Hydral having gone off after completing his work there, something like that.

I'm just going to assume you're bending time and space here for fun, like Q or something.   

Though, as Starward is missing story stuff, and as my memory is terrible for the upcoming bits that have been explained, maybe I'm just forgetting part of it that makes this appear to fit more.

Starward really does have lore/story stuff, it's just that it didn't get put in in time for the game's release.  So it's still coming.  I think it's interesting and to me it fits the usual style for Arcen games, so I'm thinking you guys will probably like it.

??? I thought the game didn't sell well enough and wasn't going to become a thing? I mean don't get me wrong it pleases me greatly to hear that IT IS ACTUALY COMING! its just I had the impression it wasn't coming at all before.

Misery:
I dont remember if Chris mentioned it directlky, but I'm pretty sure *I* mentioned Starward's upcoming thing a few million times on the Starward part of the forum already...

...wether or not I was SUPPOSED to is another matter.   It's awhile off though.  There's alot to do for it, quite alot.  But it's going well so far!
